Minneapolis, MN – About 50 people rallied here at People’s Plaza, the encampment of Occupy MN, and proceeded to south Minneapolis where they occupied a foreclosed home, November 19. In the early evening Minneapolis police, arrested two participants, and attempted to board up the home. Activists surrounded the home, police left, and occupiers re-entered the home. The occupation is ongoing.

This is the second foreclosed home to be occupied in recent weeks. On Nov. 8, an occupation began at the home of Monique White. White, who lives at 3310 N 6th St, is facing imminent eviction from her foreclosed home.
